3:04pm Facing The Other Way - The Story of 4AD

Co-founded by Ivo Watts-Russell, English indie record label 4AD was funded by Beggars Banquet founder Martin Mills who recognised Russell's singular A&R vision. Between 1980 and 1999 Russell signed a roster of stylistic trailblazers to 4AD that included Bauhaus, Modern English, Birthday Party, Cocteau Twins, This Mortal Coil Dead Can Dance, Throwing Muses, The Pixies, The Breeders and many more. Trevor Reekie talks to English author Martin Aston, who has published a defining history of the label called Facing the Other Way - The Story of 4AD.
